Nizza DOCG Riserva BAUDA

Variety: Barbera 100%.

Vineyard: The grapes come from our historic vineyard at the Estate in Incisa Scapaccino, planted in 1961.

Vinification: After hand selection, the grapes are crushed within hours of harvest and placed in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. After alcoholic fermentation is finished and maceration with the skins, the wine is racked several times and then introduced into French oak barrels for aging for about 30 months. This is followed by bottle aging, which continues for at least 1 year.

Pairings: Try it with stracotto al Barbera, rabbit with chestnuts or agnolotti with roast sauce.

We also recommend you look at the Nizza DOCG Riserva, which comes close as taste notes.

The taste is firm, full but balanced with a long and pleasant finish. Perfectly balanced between tannin and acidity.

History

The new Nizza Docg appellation was recognized in 2014.

Created with the 2000 vintage, the “Nizza” sub-zone includes 18 small Monferrato municipalities individually analyzed and chosen for their vocation in growing Barbera grapes. A Nizza comes from vineyards in hilly areas, with an altitude between 150 and 350 meters above sea level and optimal exposure.

The vineyards from which our Nizza wines are born are in the heart of the area and have soil rich in marine deposits, characterized by a sandy loam texture. Extending between the municipalities of Nizza Monferrato and Incisa Scapaccino, these vineyards are historic to our family having been planted in 1961, the year the estate was purchased.
